Question about Computers & Internet

I purchased your program thinking it would convert all MAC programs to PC format. I am trying to convert McFamilytree so I can use it on my PC and I cannot. If this is not possible could I get a refund as the program is of no value to me other than this conversion

    Conversions Plus 660 is the program

  • lmair36 Jul 14, 2008

    Can you suggest one? I am using conversion Plus 660

  • lmair36 Jul 14, 2008

    Does anyone know a PC program that will accept data from McFamilytree? The person that has the data I need has a MAC and of course like almost everyone else I have a PC.

Greetings,

Mileage varies with Conversion Softwares.
Some converted software works, some fails specially if the application was originally written for the PowerPC processor.

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

Im sure theres some limitations to those conversion programs.

There are quite a few family tree programs out there for PC use. Some are free as well.

Is it possible to export the data from McFamilytree into another program?

    Sir I think you misunderstood the program, It does not convert the SOFTWARE it converts the file formats, basically what it does is convert windows files (like microsoft word .doc) to another file type that can be acessed on the Mac..



    Fixya isnt responsible for that software product, we do not develop programs but rather offer supprot for them ,, if you require more information on a refund please use this link

    Currently it isnt possible to convert software from one Os to another, These programs were specifically wirtten for macintosh and will not work on windows, neighter will Linux. The only software that will are os independent software. Meaing programs that are written in assembler and does not depend on libarys or Os specific calls or functions. YOu can Only convert the files saved or created by these software so that it can be read by anoter software from another operating system. e.g

    you can convert a Apple power book file to be read my microsoft word or vice versa.

    But to convert the program itself is currently impossible.



    I will help as best as i can in assiting you in what ever way possible

Five Useful Programs & Utilities For Your Mac Laptop


The following list of Programs and Utilities are all free, easy to use, and sure to increase the capabilities of your computer. If you have a Program or Utility that you feel should be on this list then by all means leave a comment with the name and a short description of what it does. <br /> <b>1.) VLC Media Player-</b> This open source media player is available on all operating systems. It is especially useful for Macs because it plays just about every format of music or video you can think of, which the default media player, Quicktime, can not. <br /> <b>2.) Mac The Ripper- </b>This handy program allows you to take any DVD, insert it into your computer and save it directly to your hard drive. It is great for movie lovers on vacation who don't want to use up space packing 15 or 20 of their favorite movies to watch. <br /> <b>3.) Translator Free-</b> It is exactly what you think it is. A free, easy to use translator utility that will translate text from its original language to whatever language you choose. It has over 50 languages stored including English, German, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Russian, and many more. When started, an icon that looks like a black-and-white globe will appear on the command bar at the top of your desktop. Simply highlight the text you wish to translate and drag it over the icon. <br /> <b>4.) Handbrake-</b> This program is a media converter that takes a video in one format and converts it into either .mp4 or .mkv. It allows videos in almost any format to be converted and leaves no watermarks (those annoying bits of text in the middle of your movie screen that won't go away) on the output video. <br /> <b>5.) Open Office-</b> Again, this is a program that is not exclusive to Macs, but it is most useful for Mac users. Open Office is a word processor, spreadsheet creator and power point maker all in one. It can recognize more document formats than most other word processors, and can save in multiple formats as well. <br /> So there you have it, 5 simple, easy to use programs that will make tasks on your Mac much much easier. Below are download links to all the above programs. Hope you found this helpful. <br /> VLC - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html <br /> Mac the Ripper - http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/14414/mactheripper <br /> Translator - "Downloaded from the Apple App Store" <br /> Handbrake - http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php <br /> Open Office - http://download.openoffice.org/ <br /> Until Next Time, Tricky1991

Hello, Our designer, who works on a Mac, put all his files on a G-drive Mini portable drive and sent it to me. I have a PC and am trying to get into the drive. It doesn't pop up on my computer when I plug...


Mac files normally have a Mac-binary, or double-fork structure that the PC cannot handle directly. Therefore, it is convenient to convert any Mac file prior to transferring it to a PC or a PC-based network (or to another Mac via a PC or an on-line service) so that its structure will resemble the binary structure of the conventional PC file. The Mac software to accomplish this is called MacBinary (formerly BinHex), and it is available as freeware from CompuServe (GO MACFF, filename BINHEX.HEX). It is also one of the utilities of Stuffit by Aladdin Systems, v. 3.07 or higher, and comes bundled with some communication programs. MacBinary adds a header consisting of a few (usually 128) bytes to the file. This header contains the file type and creator information and a filename that can be different from the original Mac filename. It acts as a "wrapper," hiding the double-fork Mac structure for transfer to and storage in a PC system.
When the file is transferred via modem, the MacBinary file transfer protocol (ZModem MacBinary, YModem MacBinary, etc.) automatically creates the binary PC header for the transfer. However, when the transfer is done via diskette or a typical network (or when a Binary, rather than a MacBinary, modem transfer protocol is used), the conversion from MacBinary to Binary format must be done prior to the transfer in a separate step.
If a Mac file is converted to a PC format, e.g. WordPerfect DOS or Microsoft Word Windows, on the Mac and subsequently transferred to a PC, no MacBinary conversion is needed, since the converted file no longer has the double-fork structure of the Mac. Also text-only files (which have no resource fork) need no MacBinary conversion prior to their transfer to the PC, unless they contain non-ASCII characters (accented and other non-English characters, special symbols, etc.) so really in a nutshell, it will have to be converted before it is transferred to the G-mini disc to be able to be read in PC format, you can try searching the net for programs that will convert MAC to PC but i think it will be very difficult to achieve ...hope this helps please vote and comment thanks

How can I put music on Sansa MP3 player from Macbook Pro?


Not to sure about a mac but I think mac's use a mp4 format when it rips a cd, and the Sansa will use a mp3 file. You can download a free program to convert these files but again, I know where for a PC but not a mac. Look for free mp4 to mp3 converter program for Mac..

Can't view or editvideo on my pc or mac computer


You need a PC with a fast core 2 duo or quad core processor, plus a NVIDIA Geforce 8400 or better grade graphics processor to play AVCHD files in native format. To convert them to other formats, a similarly strong PC and AVCHD compatible editing software also helps. Nero, Ulead, Vegas, iMovie, and Pinnacle offer competing programs. But make sure your PC is adequately powered.
